Is it better than paint shop pro
What are the extra features that it has over photoshop
PS and Painter are two completely different programs… PS is more of a image editing tool while painter more of a natural media painting tool. Basically if you good at using real media like watercolor,oils etc… then painter is for you. I use both, I start with painter and then put the finishing touches in PS (like color adjustments and image resizing).
If you have a artistic background then I strongly suggest you try it out.
side note: If your going to use painter make sure you have a tablet. (I use a Wacom Intuos 2)
